But Enough About Me Burt Reynolds & Jon Winokur Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

A scandalous, sentimental, no-holds-barred, New York Times bestselling memoir from one of Hollywood’s most legendary stars.
 
Burt Reynolds was a Hollywood leading man known for his legendary performances, sex symbol status, and infamous Hollywood romances. In his decades of stardom, Reynolds saw it all. But Enough About Me will, in his words, “call out the assholes,” try to make amends for “being the a*****e myself on too many occasions,” and pay homage to the superstars and ordinary heroes he came to love and respect.

Beginning with Reynolds’s adolescence as a notable football player in South Florida and the devastating car accident that ended his sports career and helped steer him toward acting, But Enough About Me then chronicles Reynolds’s meteoric rise to fame. From Oscar nominations, to the spread in Cosmopolitan magazine, to the financial decisions that took him from rich to poor and back again, Reynolds shares the wisdom that came from his many highs and lows.

He also opens up about his romances and breakups with some of Hollywood’s leading women, including the “two loves of his life,” Dinah Shore and Sally Field, and his turbulent relationship with Loni Anderson, to whom he was forced to pay record-setting amounts of alimony and child support after the couple divorced. Through it all, Reynolds reflects on his personal pitfalls and recoveries and focuses on his legacy as a father and acting teacher.

    This book was interesting, well written and funny at times. It shows the craziness of the entertainment industry. The good, bad and ugly, but overall timing is everything. Good job Burt!

    I thought this book was very good! Being a resident of Jupiter Florida since 1964 I remember a lot of what was written. My brother, Gareth Williams was part of the first group of apprentices at the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theater and has been an actor ever since!

    I've always been a fan of Burt Reynolds movies, but after reading this book, I am now a fan of Burt Reynolds, the man. Very interesting and well lived life. Very honest and not pretentious as I expected.

    I have read three other autobiographies by actors and this is one of the best. Really feel like Reynolds was real in the book and even if you are not a Reynolds fan you lean a lot about him and to stories he shares are classics.

    If you are in your 50s or older where you remember Burt, Lonnie, Deliverance, Johnny Carson, Frank Sinatra and the list goes on, you will truly enjoy this book. Burt knew ll the greats of the 50s through the 90s and he tells you honestly about them. I was impressed with Burt's knowledge of the industry, too. I didn't think he took acting seriously, but he did and does. Thanks, Burt, for the memories!

    The book was a pleasant surprise. I was left thinking he's a decent, honest, witty guy who has talent and decided to enjoy it more than market it. His anecdotes about the people he knew are funny or interesting and always self-effacing.
